Ever since the India fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah opted out of the fourth and final Test against England, the rumours about his marriage started doing the rounds on social media platforms.
The 27-year-old pacer had pulled out of the final Test of the ongoing series a few days ago, citing ‘personal reasons’. Neither the bowler nor the BCCI provided any specific details regarding his absence.
“Jasprit Bumrah made a request to BCCI to be released from India’s squad ahead of the fourth Test owing to personal reasons. Accordingly, the fast bowler has been released and he will not be available for selection for the fourth Test,” the apex governing body of cricket in India said in a press release.
However, if the reports of IANS are to be believed, the speedster is likely to tie the knot in Goa this week. Bumrah is reportedly getting married to a sports presenter.
Sources informed the news agency that only close friends and family members will attend the wedding function due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Notably, Bumrah will also miss the upcoming five-match T20I series and 3 ODIs as well against Eoin Morgan-led side.
India and England are currently battling it out in the fourth Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first on the turning track.
